Commercial Driver Physical Qualifications as Part of the 
Commercial Driver's License Process

AGENCY: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), DOT.

ACTION: Notice of meeting of negotiated rulemaking advisory committee.


SUMMARY: The FHWA announces the meeting date of an advisory committee 
(the Committee) established under the Federal Advisory Committee Act 
and the Negotiated Rulemaking Act to consider the relevant issues and 
attempt to reach a consensus in developing regulations governing the 
proposed merger of the State-administered commercial driver's license 
(CDL) procedures of 49 CFR Part 383 and the driver physical 
qualifications requirements of 49 CFR Part 391. The Committee is 
composed of persons who represent the interests that would be 
substantially affected by the rule.
    The FHWA believes that public participation is critical to the 
success of this proceeding. Participation at meetings is not limited to 
Committee members. Negotiation sessions are open to the public, so

views in the appropriate time and manner to Committee members.

July 23, 1996, 61 FR 38133. Please note that the United Motorcoach 
Association and the American Bus Association will serve as full members 
of the Committee. For additional background information on this 
negotiated rulemaking, see the notice published on April 29, 1996, at
